NewStar is a reduction software of spectral line data obtained with the 45 m radiotelescope at the Nobeyama Radio Observatory. This is a software based on AIPS (Astronomical Image Processing System) developed at NRAO, and it is extended to treat single dish data and to have a graphical user interface (GUI).
The default AIPS version for NewStar is 15APR99, and this manual is written based on this default version. (You can also use another version of AIPS 31DEC08. In this case, NewStar TASKs using AIPS TASKs of 15APR99 version should basically work. But in some cases part of the functions in such TASKs may not work, because names of adverbs rarely change.)
This manual is separated mainly into two sections, Basic manual and Reference manual. Basic manual explains fundamental aspects of NewStar, and examples of how to use basic TASKs are shown. On the other hand, details of functions of each TASK are explained in Reference manual.
